It’s a bit like the story of The Gingerbread Man – from the pride at the first appearance of a bud through the various stages of “Help! I am three quarters gone!”, “Help! I am half gone!” until eventually the ” Help! I am all gone! The ?????? has eaten me all up!” stage will arrive, with an appropriate substitution for ‘fox’ as the culprit of the story. In truth, I am not sure what is eating my one and only dahlia flower as this dahlia malarkey is a new experience for me – the only evidence is some tiny excrement on the petals, but never any sign of a critter. Do tell me, who is it? Whoever it is, don’t let on that there are now buds (yes, in the plural) on ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ and a singular bud on ‘Noordwijk’s Glory’, a big orange dahlia, and perhaps it will be too short-sighted to notice….
